SOURCE: not sucking up dirty water

Sounds like the suction motor is not working correctly. Either clogged with dirt or objects or it is failing.

Check this first:

Not suctioning properly, first check the motor duct gasket. To check this, first remove the tank and place your hand over the rubber square opening.

If your machine does have suction at the duct, continue to check the following:

Ensure the Ready Tools Dial is set to the appropriate setting (Floor Cleaning or Hose Attachments).

Remove the tank from the machine and ensure the tank lid is attached properly. The front window must first hook onto the lip of the bottom of the tank and then drape over the tank. Latch the bottom tank to the top tank lid. THIS LID CANNOT BE
ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE TANK IS NOT REMOVED FROM THE MACHINE.

Make sure the Water Tank is not full on the outside of the bladder. If it is, empty the tank.
Ensure the hose is firmly attached to the back of the machine. If not, re-insert as necessary by twisting into place.

The machine must be in an upright, locked position and set to the Hose Attachment setting. If the handle is slightly tilted back while using, it will create a small gap at the suction inlet (where handle meets gasket, above the Bottom Tank) which will cause little or no suction.

Check the red Tank Lint Screen for debris. If the Lint Screen is dirty, the unit will have poor suction. Clean the Lint Screen if necessary.

If the float flap door in the tank lid is activating prematurely when you turn the machine on, this flap door should be replaced.
Check the Tank Lid and Tank for damage.

If there is no suction there, please take your machine to a BISSELL Authorized Service Center for inspection.

SOURCE: Bissell pro heat 2x multi surface carpet cleaner making spots

maybe there's not enough vacuum or it hasn't been primed enough. I have a proheat that drove me crazy till I started leaving the heat switch on. I get wads of carpet fiber that mat around brush and spit out on the carpet, so I frequently remove them. I'm just wondering if after you empty the water, it may not have built up the suction. Good luck! hope this may be helpful

SOURCE: My Bissell Pro Heat 2X will not release water or

its probably a solenoid that controls the flow to the floor, take it to a bissell repair center, because its not an easy fix.

SOURCE: bissell 2x wont **** up the dirty water

My machine would not **** up the dirty water either. I tried everything, read the "troubleshotting" section in the manual and nothing worked. Then I discovered there is a little FILTER that is not mentioned anywhere and is hard to see. It was clogged with dog hair. It is in one of the two removable sections on the top of the machine. It is NOT in the bladder section but the section with the dial to switch from floor to tool. It is red and about 1 inch long. There is a little door on it that you flip open (it actually looks like you can remove it). Flip the little door open and you will probably find a bunch of gunk. Remove it and the machine should work perfectly. Mine now does! Good luck.

I shampooed my carpet, loaded clean water twice and added the cleaning solution. Then it dawned on me, the carpet is wet and there is not dirty water return. What am I doing wrong?


Look for a place where the dirty water reservoir is not sealed. There is air being sucked in somewhere else instead of the bottom where it's supposed to **** the water.

My Carpet cleaner isn't sucking up the dirty water. Squirting out the clean water and cleaner just fine. What's wrong?


Fairly common problem... inside the dirty water container there is a red flap that has a filter, clean it off and you are good to go.

I have a billell Pro Heat 2X without a manual. How do I fill it and what ratio water to cleaner?


The cleaner goes into the small bottom at the very rear of the machine. It is uses full strenght (don't add any water to it). You add clean water into the bottom clear plastic section on the front of the machine. The clean water bladder is soft plastic and it is filled from the top. When you start using the machine, the dirty water will get suctioned into the section surrounding this bladder. The machine will stop working when either the bladder is empty or the dirty water section is full. Remove the entire plastic section to dump out the dirty water.

The water will spray but it doesn't get sucked back up


Something is probably clogging up the suction.
Try to snake it out with a coat hanger or similar tool.
Often, especially with shedding pets hair will clog the suction pipes
Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!

Dirty Water drops behind shampooer


You are over sudsing your recovery tank. The machine is made to shut off the air flow if water starts to be pulled into the motor, but bubbles want trigger that. So if there are a lot of bubbles in your recovery tank, the get sucked into the motor (Which will destroy it eventually) and then the moisture gets exhausted onto the floor from the motor.

Solutions
1. Use less soap (Read the directions, you may be using too much)
2. Use a different kind of soap (The concentration might not be right for your machine)
3. Use a defoamer (Rug Doctor has a defoamer)
